# 3 Free Lines on the Thunderball

Found 17th Sep 2010
I'm a regular Thunderball player and just realised how to get 3 free lines each week.
I normally play 10 lines a week on the Thunderball, but just realised that if I play 14 lines, it will only cost £11.

The thing is, you win £3 if you match up the thunderball and there are only 14 Thunderballs to choose from, so assuming you play 14 different lines, all with Thunderballs ranging from 1-14, you will definitely win £3 back, therefore costing only £11.
So, for an extra pound each week, i'm getting 4 extra lines and a better chance of winning.

I know gambling isn't for everyone, but if you are a regular Thunderball player, its just a tip to get 3 free lines.

interesting tip,altho I dont see how its either a deal OR a freebie if you have to stake 14 quid to guarantee 3 back?would probably be useful info in misc for people who do this number of lines regularly but imho,it desnt belong in this section
Yeah wasn't sure where to put this, its not a deal, just a tip, but the way i saw it, its like getting 3 free lines, but you have to pay for 11 first. Maybe it is the wrong section, but just thought I'd share the idea.
You win £3 for getting the thunderball, so if you bet on all 14 you will win £3 for sure
I thought the minimum win was £5, when you match the Thunderball AND 1 other number,

Playing 14 lines and after matching the 1 thuderball you still need to match 1 out of 39 numbers, being you choose 5 other numbers, the chances of a match are high but not near a 100%, in most cases i think after buying a £14/14 line ticket, you will get back £5, thus a £9 loss

EDIT:
Just read about the new £3 prize, for just matching the thunderball, good odds i gess

We've made some changes to the Thunderball game:

* Increased the top prize to £500,000
* Added an extra draw on Friday for even more chances to win
* A new prize of £3 for matching just the Thunderball
* You can now pick five main numbers from 1-39 and still one Thunderball from 1-14

The price is still just £1 per play!

give me £14 and i'll give you £5 back every week

You beat me to it! I will beat your offer.

Give me £14 a week and I will give you 50% cash back every week (£7).
thanks for that, i'll mention it at work, we do 9 lines i think so worth the slight upgrade.
